The demand for computational resources is increasing exponentially due to an increasing amount of digital services. Cloud computing is becoming the standard for enterprises to provide these resources. This resulted in hyperscalers which consist of a large number of servers. Data centers consume more than 1% of the world’s electrical energy....

Methanol and DME are highly efficient fuels and relevant building blocks that can be synthesized by CO<sub>2</sub> hydrogenation. While several alternatives for methanol production by CO<sub>2</sub> hydrogenation have already been developed at a commercial scale, DME production is still based on methanol dehydration. In this sense, the...

High household end-user services demand of high-income families results in higher energy consumption compared with low-income families, indicating high-income families may save more energy from similar building energy retrofitting (BER) strategies. Therefore, current BER subsidy policies, which consider technique indicators and ignore...

Containerization has become a fundamental component of software development and the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. However, the energy overhead of containerization solutions such as Docker results not only in higher costs but also has environmental consequences. Currently, the energy efficiency of containers is...

In 1987, Brundtland coined the term "sustainable development" to tackle the worldwide issue of environmental deterioration. Subsequent to that, swift progressions in science and technology have resulted in climate change, characterized by a rapid increase in global temperatures. The primary objective of the Paris Climate agreement is to limit...

Quantum computers, mainly rely on quantum bits (qubits), which need to be operated at cryogenic temperatures. With the need for systems with thousands or even millions of qubits, the challenges of wiring and scalability become more apparent. To address this, several studies focused on the idea of fully integrated cryogenic controller systems. It...

With the rise of all-electric buildings the load on the electrical grid grows. This could slow down the energy transition and densification of existing neighbourhoods as the current grid is not capable to withstand a higher load. This research gathers literature on different peak shaving techniques to create a clear overview and investigates the...
